Orlando Cruz wins his first big fight since coming out (Picture This #23)

20121020-083334.jpg

At 4am UK time we watched Orlando Cruz win his first big boxing match since he bravely came out as gay. It was a dominant victory over 12 rounds, and a unanimous decision by the judges. His next fight could land him the world featherweight title.

But a new star was also born, his mother, who told Telemundo “he’s my son 100% and now I love him more than ever.”

CONGRATULATIONS ORLANDO. You deserve this. May other frightened gay sports stars look to your example, your success, and tell the world who they are.
